Our latest podcast features Jacqueline Boulden (Her Past Can’t Wait, Pine Place Press/indie, September 2022). We discuss EMDR, a new therapeutic treatment that plays a central role in her novel and has been effective in treating people suffering from PTSD, how Jacqueline’s background as a reporter both helped and got in the way when she entered the world of fiction, and the valuable advice and support she’s found in a new sub-group within WFWA that specifically helps debut indie authors navigate the tricky terrain of publishing their own work.
Jacqueline Boulden is the 2023 IPPY (Independent Press) Gold Award Winner
for Best Regional Fiction, Mid-Atlantic, for Her Past Can't Wait. This debut novel
was also named the 2023 Global Book Awards Gold winner for Psychological Thriller,
and finalist in several other contests. Her second novel, Family Ties Family Lies
(pub Jan 2024), also looks at how our past affects our present and shapes our future.
Before turning to writing fiction, Jacqueline won several Emmy awards for reporting
and Telly awards for video production. Her TV career took her around the country covering
politics in Washington, D.C., NASA and the space shuttle program in Florida (including the
Challenger accident) and fighting the wind for control of her hat during live shots in hurricanes
and blizzards while working in Orlando and Philadelphia. She lives in upstate New York with
her spouse and their rescue dog, who’s teaching them how to speak Beaglish.
